DescriptionAs the media remind us on a daily basis, we are what we eat - there is a link between the composition and quality of the food we eat and our health.
Graduate programmes in food technology and molecular nutrition are usually two separate degrees. At Aarhus University, these disciplines are combined. With the MSc in Molecular Nutrition and Food Technology, students will acquire the tools and knowledge required to develop nutritious foods – foods designed to reduce the risk of developing the lifestyle diseases of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, allergies, and cancer.
The combined nature of this programme allows students to gain a holistic understanding of the importance of food for human health. The degree provides knowledge of molecular biology and technical skills at the juncture between food technology, nutrition and health. Students will understand food production all the way down to the molecular level, such as how new processing methods can affect the functional characteristics of food – an important skill for those wanting to work with research and development in the food sector.
About the DegreeThe MSc in Molecular Nutrition and Food Technology is a collaborative effort between four main academic areas at Aarhus University. This broad foundation means that students are taught by experts in their fields and also that the programme is based on a holistic understanding of the importance of food for human health. As a student on the programme, you will gain insight into how new processing methods affect the functional characteristics of foods. The MSc degree provides knowledge of molecular biology and technical skills at the all-important juncture between food technology, nutrition and health.
The MSc in Molecular Nutrition and Food Technology is open to students with a BSc degree in the natural, technical or health sciences with a molecular biology content.
